The Rivers State Government has handed over relief materials and farm seedlings to three local government areas of the state for distribution to farmers affected by the recent flood disaster in the state.

The farm seedlings, which include bundles of cassava stem, yam, plantain and banana suckers, were handed over to the chairman, Abua/Odual Local Government Council and his Ahoada East and Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni counterparts for distribution to their farmers.

The Commissioner for Special Duties, Barrister Dickson Umunakwe, who performed the handover ceremony in the respective local government council headquarters, said that the gesture was part of the ongoing efforts by the state government to rehabilitate the farmers.

Barrister Umunakwe said that the gesture was aimed at bringing succour to the farmers whose farms had been washed off by the disaster.

The commissioner said that the situation was a reflection of the love and care which Governor Chibuike Amaechi has , not only for victims of the disaster, but the entire citizenry of the state. The Tide

He, however, said that government would not stop at this level as the  situation would be sustained.

The commissioner also stressed the need for the affected councils to ensure that the seedlings get across to all farmers affected by the disaster.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner for Special Duties, Barrister Dickson Umunakwe has given a seven-day ultimatum to those who encroach on land belonging to the  Rivers State Five Service at  Ahoada to vacate the area.

    It has shown that the Government cannot pectrot it Citizens. Every Nigerian have a right to chose what they believe in, some might believe in Christianity or Islam while some believe in traditional way of worship and some are even atheist. Killing people drinking at drinking joint by anyone is senseless, why do people kill in the name of God or why should they be fighting for God? Is their God not big enough to punish whom so ever not obey him after life? Lots of people are ignorant and religion should not be used as a criteria to or for anything. It is time for all Nigerians to be able to defend themselves with guns and what so ever they can use to defend themselves since the government can not pectrot them. Legalize Arms for Nigerians,let everyone fight and pectrot themselves and Family,since the government cannot.
